Sonic Frontiers 2023 + The Final Horizon DLC Review

It is the nature of modern games that they can change, and quickly. Luckily Sonic Frontiers is all about quick. Okay, puns aside, this is a game that has changed a lot since I reviewed it back in January, and not least because of the free Final Horizon DLC released at the end of last month. But is that enough to bring players back? My initial opinion on Sonic Frontiers is that it was a diamond in the rough. It…

Assassin’s Creed Mirage Review

Assassin’s Creed has become one of those staple games we expect to see every couple of years, having been around the block a few times, Ubisoft is always looking for ways to reinvent the series. Going back to Origins, the game took a GIANT RPG leap forward and started to become a bigger and more robust experience since then. In many eyes, these games while great, often lost themselves and were just giant to be giant. Lots of collectables, side…

Forza Motorsport Review

It’s been a hot minute since we have had a Forza Motorsport game, we had two great entries in the Horizon series since the last one. Has the time off given this series a chance to reinvent itself? Perhaps continue to absolutely master the art of racing games? Or does it just bring things back to the way they used to be? Yes to all of the above, kind of…. Forza Motorsport is a sim racing video game at its…

Lies of P Review

If you’d have told me that one of my favourite games of 2023 would be a Soulslike based on Pinocchio, I’d have laughed and laughed. And yet here we are. Lies of P takes the formula perfected by From in Dark Souls and Elden Ring and makes an impressive job at replicating it. This is addictive, dark and fun. It’s also difficult. Arguably it’s more difficult than some of the From games. But as always in this genre, there is…

The Crew Motorfest Review

It’s hard to put out a racing game today and not be compared to things like Forza or Gran Tourismo, which are the cream of the crop in the gaming world to be honest. But Ubisoft tries their damnedest with The Crew Motorfest. Eight years ago, with THE CREW 1, they¬† brought to life a vision of a shared open world filled with car adventures. They gave players the opportunity to experience the illegal street racing fantasy in the whole…

Final Fantasy XVI (No Spoilers) Review

Final Fantasy has struggled with itself for a good long time. How do you recreate the scale and majesty of a massive SNES or even PS1 game in the HD era? The answer, for a long time, was that you just don’t. You stick to narrow corridors, or scale back the story. Maybe you confine your characters to a car for long journeys, with passing landmarks doing just and only that. With Final Fantasy VII Remake and now Final Fantasy…

Two Point Campus Medical School DLC Review

Two Point Hospital and Two Point Campus have been some go-to cozy gaming of mine for the past couple of years. Harking back to Theme Hospital back on the PC, where I also spent waaay too much time playing, the series has been a comfort food sort of gaming experience for me since then. A brilliant mix of humour, simulation, and fun make it a good time had by all. Now Two Point Studios introduces its latest DLC instalment for…

Madden 24 Review

There are very few things you can count on in life. What’s the saying go the only sure thing are death and taxes? Well, I would say the only sure things are Call of Duty and Madden…yes, it’s that time of year again. The air gets a little crisper, the beers get a little more pumpkin-y, and it’s time for that Sunday tradition of FOOTBALL. So of course, we need our annual installment in the Madden series to allow us…

Broforce Forever (Xbox Series X)

When America needs to dole out some democracy, there’s only one gang of soldiers brave enough to answer the call: the Broforce. Made up of familiar (but not too familiar) faces from favourite action films and TV series of the 80s and 90s, you get to chew gum and kick ass through dozens of hilariously funny levels. And while the original game came out in 2015, Broforce Forever – the final update – was released earlier this month. And it’s…

Disney Illusion Island Review

Back in the 90’s and early 2000’s, licensed games were all the rage and back then there also was a plethora of of Disney themed games featuring numerous franchises such as Lion King, Aladdin, Duck Tales and so much more. But perhaps none were as more iconic as the ones featuring our favorite mouse and figurehead of Disney Mickey Mouse. This time he brings along some friends for a Metroid Vania platforming extravaganza. Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy arrive on…
